15 Reasons Why I Hate Summer

If you ever need to look for a real-life Elsa, you need look no further. I am the human equivalent in that I love the cold. Like seriously, love it. So naturally, I have a bit of a freak-out every time summer comes around and aside from all of the BBQ’s, there’s not a single thing I like about it. Here is my list of 15 reasons why I hate summer which you can read whilst I hibernate until October.

15 Reasons Why I Hate Summer

  1. Hayfever: I tell you, there’s absolutely nothing I love more than sneezing 300 times a day and having a sinus headache for 5 months out of the year.
  2. Personal maintenance: I hate shaving my legs but unfortunately, more skirts and shorts means more leg shaving. Unless you’re one of those ultra cool women who doesn’t and gives no fucks. I bow to you.
  3. Bugs: Wasps. Ugh. Daddy long legs. Ugh. Flying ants. Triple ugh.
  4. Lethargy: I don’t know about you, but heat makes me soooo tired. And going to bed at 8 every night doesn’t make for very interesting stories.
  5. Electric shocks every time you touch a car door: Although I think this one might just be me. Even so, what the hell man?
  6. Being a pale, redhead: Sunburn. Sunburn everywhere. Sunburn when it’s not even sunny.
  7. The race against time ice-cream challenge: Taking an ice-cream from the freezer to the living room without it melting down your arm is just an impossible task.
  8. Showering 3 times a day: Could do without that, to be honest.
  9. No air-con: My house isn’t air conditioned. 99% of houses in the UK aren’t air conditioned. My kitchen turns into a sauna and my bedroom turns into Mordor. So sleeping is like, super pleasant.
  10. Trying not to act awkward when you head into your garden for an nice relaxing hour of reading at exactly the same time as your 65 year-old neighbour in nothing but his pants does: Eww.
  11. Not being able to use the oven in between the hours of 12pm and 9pm: Well, you can, if you don’t mind feeling like a dragon has just breathed on your head.
  12. Wasting make-up: Because by the time you step outside, it’s already melted off.
  13. The hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of Ibiza and Maga photos that pop up on Facebook: Which all look exactly the same. Are 460 photos all of you in a club, with paint on your face, holding a vodka and coke really necessary?
  14. Getting into a car and feeling like you’ve accidentally fell into the fires of hell: What did I do to deserve this? I always tried to be a good person.
  15. Heat, in general: Hate it.

Do you agree with any of these or are you a lover of this dreaded season? What are your favourite and least favourite things about summer? Let me know!

  1. […] Lattes, fairy-lights, hearty food and more! Personally, Autumn and Winter is when I thrive – I absolutely hate Summer so I look forward to these colder months for ages and when they hit, you can be damn sure that […]

    This is an old blog, but I’m replying anyway. It’s 110F today and is going to be for the rest of the week. Summer can go die now.

    1. Totally agree, I don’t know where you are in the world but it’s unbearable!
